Around the world, Kylie Minogue has been a superstar for at least two decades. In the United States, she was a one hit wonder. It was an awful cover of "Locomotion" in the Stock Aitken Waterman style. Rubbish. Most of what those guys did was rubbish. Not everything. Most everything.
Then she started working with the Pet Shop Boys.
Then she released this. A good seven years before Lady Gaga released anything. It's smart and sexy and has a terrific hook. And now, it's going to be stuck in your head.
It's important to note that Kylie was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of years after this video. She beat it and continued on with her career, releasing several more Wicked Guilty Pleasures. We salute her for that!
UPDATE: Kylie rerecorded this song in 2012......as more of dignified, strings-heavy song. It still worked.
